Dear All - this was last year's thread. It is unnecessary for any new postings to it. Please do not post to this thread.
If you want to know about the 2004 Yorkshire Gathering. there is a thread for that one Yorkshire Gathering 2004. Please post there.
Perhaps a Joeclone or one of the pixies could close this thread?
Quack!

Yes, Noreen, Titch's name is Vanessa...though I did persist in calling her Natasha for the first 2 months of courting (well, it sounded the same to my Greek ears at the time). I guess the fact that she did stick with me must be testimony for my looks at the time...but as Sir Rich would say it's all "withered and gone" now!

Thanks for the kind words.
And Micca; and Mr Happy;
Can't wait till we meet again.

Here's the weekend's saddest story - I said I was coming on Saturday. On Thursday, my computer died, and I forgot I hadn't made a note of the pub's details. Come saturday morning, I realized I didn't know exactly where it was, but I thought I had a rough idea it was somewhere in sight of Drax power station, so I jumped in my car and toured about, checking up on likely looking pubs. After a couple of hours, I gave up and went home to Doncaster. I realize now that I drove past it at least twice. Ah well - it could only happen to a banjo player (don't all cheer at once!).
Even so, I'm glad you all had a great weekend, and maybe I'll find it next year!
Cheers
Ray

When she says off the wall, what she reallly means is, there were no walls... just a larch lap fence and a fetching open plan gazebo..... but it was bliss, sitting there all Alf Resco... hearing the little birds twittering, watching the bees buzzing round, wondering if the next door neighbours were looking out of their bedroom windows and would they throw you some paper whilst they were there......

And a Godsend at dawn when making it to the pub wasn't an option!

What a wonderful gathering of wonderful people! Sang, played, listened, socialised ...and drank... over a very full weekend. What great people you all are- and El Greko is every bit as lovely and talented as I've been told; a splendid addition to the gathering. We will do it sometime, G!

Our hosts Gary & Tracy at the Black Dog couldn't have been more hospitable, cooking breakfasts 'til 11 am for late risers while preparing Sunday lunches to start at 12...

One of the highlights was the five of us harmonising to Sue's tuneful singing kettle in her palace, at 3am on Sunday. Loved your harmonies, chaps!

Took my camera but was too busy doing it to photograph it, if you know what I mean.... Look forward to seeing pics as and when.

Willa - you are a lot younger than I though you were !!! And I'm sorry if I blew your microphone and sound levels!!!

Good to put more names to faces, and more bodily contact with hugging type persons.....

It was well worth the 7 hr drive to get there (3hrs more than it took to get home, but it was downhill all the way)

The Parody session at 8.15 on Saturday morning resulted in one, which didn't get sung and one that did..... maybe I should have done the other one. There will shortly be a song appearing about people who organise things for unearthly hours in the morning and then stay in bed (mentioning no names but just check out the postings above).....

It was a wonderful weekend of reunions - old friends with each other and songs with authors - of crutches - started the weekend with 4 crutches in "Cripps Corner", ended it with only 1 - and of meeting new people and new songs.

Thank you...

Thanks to Tig for lending me her bath for half an hour and Thanks to everyone who made a contribution to The Landing Book!!!.......much appreciated.

Nice to see lots of catters there. Nice to meet lots of new catters and great to meet Allan C!!!

I want to echo the thanks to the Ducks. I had a great time - lovely to meet up with friends old and new!
The pub was superb, a great find! I hope we can return, especially now I know where the entrance to the field is! Thanks Bradfordian, I would probably still be trying to reverse the super tanker onto the main road!
I thoroughly enjoyed all the singing and the music I managed to hear. The main problem was trying to be in 2 places at once! Already looking forward to 2004!

Very good venue & hosts; great food; great attendance, 60 or so 'catters; well organised by Jane & Geoff; good balance between singers & musicians, lots of raffle prizes, the massed sing was a hoot, the Kazoo band also! And yes there will be a YG2004 as well as the Euro Gather a couplw of weeks earlier. Great range of songs. And I didn't even mind having to put my tent up in the rain(thogh I did have help - thanks for that!) Now if only we could stop the garbage men from calling at 6.30 am!!!

Made it back at 20:00, somewhat cream-crackered but smiling. Lovely sessions, lovely voices (Teresa, Hazel, Linda, Nutty, Karen, Sue vG, Noreen, Willa, ZM & Kate top my female list, no order; Allan C, Alanww & MCP top my male list, Graham you'll have to finish The Manch next time!), mean instrument playing (Colin now joins Mick at the top of my jealousy list; Sam was working wonders in the "session room"). And I now have an eyeful of faces and an earful of sounds to sort out in my sleep tonight (and a bellyful of Abbots and Broadside - Titch).

Aahhh....nice! Thanks, all, for the warmth. Thanks, Teresa, for the chance to sing together and especially for the parting song. Thanks to the ducklings for beeing such sweeties. And thanks Mrs Duck for the organisation.

Here's to the next one

I second everything that has been said already ....... absolutely super weekend. The seemingly seamless organisation showed how much thought Jane and Geoff had already put in. Many Thanks to both.

Super camp site and pub with unique night-time toilet fascilities!!!!

It was great meeting old friends and putting faces to new ones.

The voice just held out ....I admit to being a bit croaky ....... but roll on 2004.
